Two Holes for the Dogs
My uncle has two dogs. One big and the other small. He likes them very much.
One day, Mr. Smith came to vit him. When the friend saw two holes in the door, a large hole and a small hole, he was surpred and said, “My dear friend, why are there two holes in your door?” “Let my dogs come in and come out, of course,” Mr. Smith asked. “But why are there two holes? One enough!” “But how can the big dog go through the small hole?” my uncle said.
有一天，史密斯先生来看他。当这个朋友看见门口上有连个洞，一个是大洞和一个小洞时，他感到吃惊并说，“我亲爱的朋友，为什么你的门上有连个洞?”我的叔叔回答说：“当然是让我的两条狗进出了。 ” 史密斯先生问到：“ 为什么门上要两个洞呢?一个就足够了。” 我叔叔说：“大狗怎能走小洞呢?”
Sometimes a clever man may make such a mtake.

Chunyu Kun (淳于髡) lived in the state of Qi (齐国) during the Warring States Period (战国,475-221 BC).He was we, humorous and eloquent. He skillfully adved the king on many occasions and successfully went to many states as an envoy.
In the year 349 BC, the State of Chu (楚国) dpatched a large force to attack Qi.
The king of Qi sent Chunyu Kun to the state of Zhao (赵国) to ask for help, with a lot of valuable gifts.
The king of Zhao accpeted the gifts gladly and sent a hundred thousand troops to help Qi.
The king of Chu withdrew h army that very night as soon as he got the news.
The king of Qi was released and pleased with Chunyu Kun. He set a banquet for celebration.
During the meal, the king asked Chunyu Kun, How much wine can you drink before youre drunk, Sir?
Knowing the king had a bad habit of drinking all night, Chunyu Kun decided to take th chance to admonh the king. So he replied, I get drunk when I drink ten litres or hundred.
Puzzled, the king askked, Since you are drunk after ten litres, how can you finh another ninty litres?
Chunyu Kun then explained that he could drink different amounts of wine under different conditions. He said, Th occurs to me that when you drink to your limit, you get so drunk that you lose your sense; once joy reaches its height, then its sorrows turn. Th the rule for everything. Whatever you do, you are bound to end up in the opposite direction when you exceed the limits.本文来源：http://www.diffuseuk.com/lizhigushi/21559.html
